The Ozone Issue

PROZONE = Pro + Ozone = Ozone-Friendly

The device is called PROZONE because it is ozone-friendly. The term ozone-friendly is now applied to many different products to mean that they help to conserve ozone in the Earth’s atmosphere. However, just take a look at the picture below, which shows typical urban traffic smog, the unpleasant haze you tend to get on hot, sunny day when there is little or no wind.

This smog is basically ozone created by the interaction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). This “ozone smog” is known to be a dangerous pollutant, which can cause deterioration in lung tissue and can aggravate respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, etc.


In a single year the average motor car produces almost 11,000 lbs of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), 120 lbs of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), several lbs of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and significant quantities of other very harmful pollutants, including Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrocarbons (HC) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Although Carbon Dioxide (CO2) does not directly affect human health, it is the main contributor to the "greenhouse effect" which increases global warming.

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) are produced as a result of the very high engine operating temperatures typically encountered when the vehicle is stationary or moving slowly in traffic. In the presence of VOC's and strong sunlight, oxides of Nitrogen form ground-level ozone, a major component of the traffic smog.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is lethal in confined spaces, initially inducing drowsiness and subsequently causing death when inhaled. Carbon Monoxide is formed when there is insufficient oxygen present to ensure complete combustion of the fuel. It is particularly dangerous to people who smoke or who have anemia or heart disease.

Medical reports have linked the formation of cancer and other diseases to Hydrocarbon particulates. Hydrocarbons (HC) are particles of Carbon soot emitted through the exhaust system as a result of incomplete combustion. They can cause damage to lung tissue and cardiovascular disease. Children and the elderly are at highest risk from the particulate matter emitted by motor vehicles.

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) is a factor in the production of "acid rain" which acidifies soil and water, consequently killing plant and animal life. It also causes corrosive damage to buildings and is known to aggravate respiratory conditions such as asthma and chronic bronchitis.

Fitting Prozone FuelSaver to engines reduces the production of all these harmful toxic gases.
